Certified Laboratory List

Overview

Drug testing laboratories certified by the Department of Health and Human Services receive urine specimens and test them to determine the presence of drugs. They also conduct validity testing to determine if the specimen has been adulterated or substituted.

A laboratory located in the U.S. is only permitted to participate in DOT drug testing only if it is certified by HHS under the National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) or in the case of a foreign laboratory, if it is approved for participation by the DOT with respect to Part 40.

A laboratory participating in DOT drug testing must comply with the requirements in 49 CFR Part 40, as well as, all applicable HHS requirements.
